Sony is blocking Fortnite cross-play on Nintendo Switch

Unlike PUBG however, Fortnite Battle Royale is completely free. Now you can take the game with you on-the-go on a device more capable than a smartphone. Regardless, if you've played on PS4 and now want to play on Switch, you'll have to create a new Epic Games account wholly separate from the one tied to your PSN account. Don't worry, it's still free as only Save the World requires you to pay - that is if you don't purchase the completely optional seasonal Battle Pass. "I was a tester on PC who's finished every season and spent hundreds of dollars on the game but nope no Switch play for me since I played once on a PS4", writes user kagatoASUKA.

A nine-year-old girl is in rehab after becoming so addicted to a video game she wet herself to avoid moving and hit her father when he tried to stop her playing. Of course, whether those games can pull off the same addicting gameplay as Fortnite remains to be seen. We assume that cross-play with all of these other platforms will be supported on the Nintendo Switch. They have nothing to gain by supporting Fortnite cross-play, whereas Xbox and Nintendo have everything to gain from it.

If you needed any further proof that Fortnite is coming to the Nintendo Switch, then here you go.

The Pro-Am features 100 total players-the total for a Battle Royale match-50 of which are celebrities, and 50 of which are regular players.

Nintendo says the game will be available at 10 a.m. PT on Tuesday morning, so you don't have long to wait.

Nintendo said the game can be played on-the-go or at home, per the Switch's main functionality as a portaable or a TV-based game console. That data includes the release date, which reads June 12, 2018-a.k.a. the date of Nintendo's E3 presentation tomorrow.
